First study quilt finished!

The first of the quilts based upon Ivan Zelenin’s drawing is just 14″ square.  I began with a silk painting of the drawing, using the white of the serti technique to form the lines between the logs of the buildings.    It is machine quilted with white thread to follow the lines of the drawing.

The Zelenin drawing leaves many questions.  I wonder how he chose the frame of the drawing.   He clearly felt that the relationship between the cabins was more significant than showing the base of the tower, for example.  And, then, there is the question of color.  A line drawing simply invites color experiments.  That is what I have done here.
